Bleecker Bloomberg

OPENED October 18th, 2017

Bleecker Bloomberg joins the new group of restaurants in The City’s Bloomberg Arcade from 11am today.

Bleecker make some of the best burgers in London and are just all-round great guys, so we welcome this new branch while simultaneously making another hole in our belts.

The first 50 customers through the door at 11am will receive a special edition, opening day t-shirt.

The Spot:

This is a third permanent site for Bleecker, inside the new Bloomberg Arcade, and it’s their biggest to date, with 40 seats inside and 20 outside. The good news is you can also book a table (because sometimes you just want to know you can definitely have a burger).

They will be joined soon by some other exciting restaurants, including Brigadier from JKS restaurants (the group behind Gymkhana, Trisha, Hoppers and Motu), and Homeslice, which opens next week.

The Food:

You know you need to try the Bleecker Black if you haven’t already, right? It’s a burger with two patties and an extra treat in the middle: a layer of rich, squidgy black pudding. All their burgers are just the right size to make them completely inhalable, they’re always perfectly cooked and the ingredients are top quality. It’s hard to ask for anything more from a burger.

The beef here is serious — grass-fed rare breed cattle only — and it shows. What’s wonderful about the burgers is that above all, you can taste the meat. It comes from South London’s The Butchery and is aged for fifty days for a really intense flavour. Their classic burger is then built with burger sauce, cheese and a sesame seed bun (brioche, be gone!). It’s simple and it’s clever: the antithesis of the bad pub burger, knife skewering grey meat and cheddar cheese to a wooden board.

The Drinks:

They’ve made two cunning additions to (we assume) please the City folk, and that’s adding wine to the list and providing an outside drinking area to consume it in. We know those financial whizzkids love to line the streets after they’re done crunching numbers; it’s thirsty work.

They also have the usual selection of beers from great breweries (Stone, Brooklyn, Brew by Numbers, Two Roads), and thick, creamy shakes, for those who want to put their game face on.

The Damage:

Burgers are £6.50–10; sides £3–4 and shakes and beers £4.50.

In a Nutshell:

Bloomberg Arcade is going to be a sweet little food destination once all the restaurants have opened and we particularly envy those who will be able to pop into Bleecker come lunchtime. Founder Zan Kaufman said of the opening: ‘Opening in the City was always the plan for Bleecker. We have finally have arrived in the square mile! Opening in the Bloomberg building is the icing on top. Mr. Bloomberg is an American icon. I feel privileged to be a member of his community in London. We heard on the grapevine that Mayor Bloomberg loves burgers; we can’t wait for him to give Bleecker a try!’
